Heather, was "Monster" the exact name of the movie? There was a movie by that name from last year that starred Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci.

Or there was "Monster's Ball" in 2001 with Halle Berry.

Hope this helps! :) Good luck!
 
Ashlee: Acid reflux caused 'SNL' gaffe.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AP) -- This time Ashlee Simpson sang it for real.

We think.

The 19-year-old pop artist was among a slew of stars who played Monday during the 2004 Radio Music Awards at the Aladdin hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Despite numerous performances by big-name acts such as Destiny's Child and Alanis Morissette, Simpson was at the center of the show thanks to a glitch on "Saturday Night Live" last weekend that revealed she had been lip-synching one of her songs.

Monday night she told awards show host Carson Daly in an off-stage interview that acid reflux disease had made her lose her voice four hours before her "SNL" appearances.

She didn't seem concerned about her slip up.

"You move on," Simpson said. "Things happen."

During the awards show, she had fun with the slip up. Before she sang "Autobiography" off her hit album, Daly reassured Monday's audience they were getting a live performance.

"Live, yes live," he said.

When Simpson's band started playing, the younger sister of pop starlet Jessica Simpson screamed, "It's the wrong song." Seconds later, she told a stunned theater filled with hundreds of people that she was "only kidding."

Politics also didn't spoil the night at the Aladdin, where rocker Linda Ronstadt was told to leave in July after praising "Fahrenheit 9/11," Michael Moore's unflattering documentary about President Bush.

Neither Moore nor Ronstadt appeared at the awards show but former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan made himself seen by wearing a T-shirt "Vote or Die!"

The two-hour show broadcast live on NBC. The nominees in each category were based on radio's top-playing songs. Radio program and music directors nationwide voted on the winners.
 
Tom Brokaw wraps it up.

NEW YORK (AP) -- As a 16-year-old high school student, Tom Brokaw spent his first working Election Night in a radio station newsroom in Yankton, South Dakota. He reported results from rural polling places, and ate chicken catered from Kip's Blue Moon restaurant.

His last Election Night will be considerably grander.

NBC News is building a huge temple of democracy at New York's Rockefeller Center. A giant jigsaw-puzzle map of the United States will cover the famed ice skating surface and the General Electric building will be the backdrop for an electronic bar graph tracking the Bush-Kerry fight.

And when either candidate reaches the magic mark of 270 electoral votes, fireworks will explode over the New York City skyline.

OK, that last part's a fib.

But you get the idea.

NBC is expecting a big night for TV viewers, and Brokaw will be at the center of it all.

Election Night will also mark the end of an era in broadcast journalism. For more than two decades, the three biggest networks have turned to the same men to anchor coverage of important news stories -- Brokaw, Peter Jennings and Dan Rather.

This should be Brokaw's last hurrah, since he steps down as NBC's chief anchorman December 1. By Election Day 2008, certainly one and maybe all three network faces will be different. Rather turns 73 on Halloween and is fighting for his future after CBS's botched story on President Bush's National Guard service. Jennings is 66.

"It's a natural transition and it's a new generation taking over," said Brokaw, 64. "I had my opportunity when I replaced John (Chancellor). Dan replaced Walter (Cronkite)."

'They rely on us'
What Brokaw has found most touching are the moments in airports -- most recently Phoenix after the final presidential debate and Los Angeles -- where folks approached him to say they'll miss seeing him on television.

"That probably means more to me than anything we could do around here because I've always felt that the essence of television news (is) it's a mass medium," he said. "We are connected from these large, glittering, bells-and-whistles sets in New York to ordinary households in the Southwest, the Midwest, to barrooms and schools and other places.

"They rely on us," he said. "You feel at the end of having done it all these years that if people still have faith in what you've done and feel a personal connection, and feel it so strongly that they're willing to come up to you and express that, that's very gratifying."


Brian Williams has been tapped as Brokaw's successor.
His biggest disappointment after two decades anchoring "Nightly News" is that the broadcast is still 30 minutes long and not an hour.

On Election Night, his sidekick in an anchor booth overlooking the rink will be Tim Russert. Brokaw's eventual replacement, Brian Williams, will report that night from a nearby booth adjacent to the rink.

NBC will almost certainly be the most-watched network that night, and not for nostalgic reasons. Brokaw has been lengthening NBC's lead in the evening news ratings race in recent months, and it has been the network of choice for most big political events this year.

Citing an NBC News poll that found 74 percent of Americans who said the election was very important to them, Brokaw said the last time he saw such a tuned-in electorate was during the 1968 Vietnam-era campaign between Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey.

"Here you have two men of privilege, both from Yale University, both from the same fraternity, members of Skull & Bones, with distinctly different points of view about how the world should take shape in the next four years and what the place of the United States should be in it," he said.

"That's a story of almost Shakespearean proportion, when you think about it," he said. "And that's the story that we need to tell."

A different life
Brokaw waves off the idea of a "Churchillian farewell" at the end of next month, but you can certainly expect the occasion to be marked on several NBC News broadcasts. He's not retiring; Brokaw plans to continue to write books and work on documentaries for NBC News.

To see him immediately after December 1, you'll have to travel.

Brokaw is already planning a fishing trip to New Zealand, and mountain-climbing expeditions to Argentina and Chile. A recent trip to Los Angeles to visit his daughter and her family reminded him of other obligations.

He arrived in time for dinner and took his grandchildren to school the next day. Then he took the next flight out.

"I'm kind of a fly-by grandparent, and I don't like that very much," he said.

A fellow adventurer has already called to assign Brokaw a 12-step program for easing into his new life.

The first step?

"Walk out the door," he said.
 
Has any one who likes horror movies seen this one called "Grudge"..Sarah Michelle Gellar is in it?...just i was thinking about going to see it when it comes out in an couple of weeks...
 
Iam watching the world premiere of "Blackjack-sweet science" its an aussie movie its got Colin Freils (from water rats)...it is really good for an aussie movie if any one gets the chance take an look at it ....
 
Just heard on the radio that the actor Howard Keel has died in his early 80's not much more was said and also Eddie Charlton has passed away to he was 75 ...when iand if i get any more info i will post it thats if no one gets in before me..if they do they do..no biggie.

Studio Boss Sherry Lansing to Retire
E! Online News
by Sarah Hall
Nov 2, 2004

Paramount Pictures chairwoman Sherry Lansing is ready to relinquish her status as the most powerful woman in Hollywood.

Lansing announced Tuesday that she plans to step down from her position at the end of next year, when her contract expires.

Lansing, 60, has held the Paramount post since 1992 and has spent more than three decades in the entertainment industry since she broke into the movie business as an actor and model in the late 1960s.

She said she would not seek another entertainment-related job. Sources close to Lansing told the Los Angeles Times that she had grown weary of elaborate red-carpet rituals and battling over film budgets.

"I'll have been in this job for 12 years and have had the opportunity and the privilege to work with the very best the entertainment industry has to offer," Lansing said in a statement.

"With the greatest team of filmmakers imaginable and the most supportive colleagues at Viacom, I have been able to accomplish more than I could have hoped for in the motion picture business. I move on with great memories, many friendships and few regrets. But now it is time for new challenges. I am extremely excited about the months ahead and planning the next chapter in my life."

A former model and actress of minor note, Lansing landed her first executive position in the mid-1970s, when she was made a story editor at MGM. In 1980, she became the first woman to head production at a major studio at 20th Century Fox.

At Paramount, Lansing has been involved with several of the best-received films of her generation, including Forrest Gump and The Accused. She also produced huge hits for the studio like Fatal Attraction and Indecent Proposal.

She earned the appreciation of younger audiences with recent hits Mean Girls and last year's School of Rock.

However, she's also been criticized for her apparent penchant for remakes, including the big budget The Stepford Wives and the upcoming Alfie, starring Jude Law, which is widely expected to tank at the box office. Her detractors have claimed that such choices have made the studio seem old-fashioned.

Still, Lansing's supporters say Paramount is about to see an end to its box-office blues with the upcoming releases of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events.

Lansing will continue in her current role until her contract expires, helping to find a successor to her position.

Her colleagues expressed sadness at her departure and respect for her skills on the job over the years.

Tom Freston, copresident and co-COO of Viacom, who has served as Lansing's boss since his promotion in June, spoke highly of her work. A source close to her decision told the Los Angeles Times that Freston asked Lansing to reconsider, but could not sway her from her choice.

"Few have had as long and as successful a career in running a movie studio as Sherry Lansing," Freston said in a statement. "She has led Paramount on a remarkable ride with an impressive string of successes. She has been a trailblazer and a great leader and I understand and respect her decision."

Viacom Chairman and CEO Sumner Redstone is said to want an experienced film executive to fill the void Lansing's departure will create.

"I have the deepest professional admiration and personal affection for Sherry, who I have known for more than a decade," Redstone said in a statement.

"Sherry has been the heart and soul of Paramount Pictures for 12 years and a major contributor to the motion-picture industry for more than three decades. She leaves behind a legacy of great filmmaking, including three Oscar-winning films and some of the most popular and profitable movies in history."

As far as what comes next for Lansing, some have speculated that she will start a nonprofit company or devote herself to politics.

Currently, she sits on a number of boards, including the American Red Cross, and is an active fundraiser for Friends of Cancer Research and for the Carter Center, former President Carter's human-rights organization.

"She cares about things other than the movie business--she sees a bigger world," Columbia Pictures chief Amy Pascal recently told the Los Angeles Times about Lansing.

I thought that was a very good movie also, Heather! :) I never thought it got the credit it deserved. And I think Eddie Murphy is perfect in some of those cartoon voices he's done, including in Shrek! :D
